Krystoff Kissoon – KISU FM – “Navigating Diversity Radio Series”
Top honors for Public Affairs Program in the student category
The mission of Navigating Diversity is to explore how human beings differ yet can find ways relate to one another in an increasingly xenophobic sociopolitical climate. The intention of Navigating Diversity is to have open, honest, and informed conversations that can help people navigate some of the most important issues of diversity we are facing globally today, but in a way that isn’t afraid to ask some of the big questions that can bring some of the light and hope into the conversation and help give all our lives meaning. Navigating Diversity began airing on KISU in 2018.
Navigating Diversity airs Tuesday at 7:30 pm. All past episodes can be accessed on the web at KISU.org/programs. Shows are expected in select podcast directories this summer.
